The application of the principles by which engineers have a positive impact on sustainability is known as sustainable engineering or, more colloquially, green engineering. The latter terminology resonates with resurging interest in the environmental impact of human activity and the associated "green" approaches in mitigating them. While elements of sustainable engineering permeate the broad-based Stevens undergraduate engineering programs, the scope is somewhat limited. We encourage any student, who wishes to explore sustainable approaches to engineering in some depth, to pursue a minor program.
